Mob Psycho 100 Gets Second Season

Mob Psycho 100 Gets Second SeasonThe giant mob of Mob Psycho 100 fans on hand at an official event this weekend were the first to hear some good news: the Mob Psycho 100 anime will be getting a second season.

The second season of the series, which is based on a manga by ONE (One Punch Man), will be animated by the same folks as season one, which was produced over at Bones.

That includes director Yuzuru Tachikawa (Death Parade) and composer Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell).

Here’s how Crunchyroll, which has just added the Mob Psycho 100 REIGEN OVA, describes the series:

Kageyama Shigeo, a.k.a. “Mob,” is a boy who has trouble expressing himself, but who happens to be a powerful esper. Mob is determined to live a normal life and keeps his ESP suppressed, but when his emotions surge to a level of 100%, something terrible happens to him! As he’s surrounded by false espers, evil spirits, and mysterious organizations, what will Mob think? What choices will he make? The anime based on the original story by ONE, the idol of the webcomic world and creator of One-Punch Man, is coming your way with animation by leading animation studio Bones!
